Advanced Suicide Risk Management Training – Youth Suicide Prevention

 

This QPR Advanced Level training, with a specific focus on child and youth suicide risk management and mental health issues, will provide in-‐depth information on a range of topics specific to child and youth suicide intervention.

This workshop includes training on the use of a structured interview process to gather data that leads the interviewer to establish a crisis management plan or intervention for the person who is at risk for suicide.

This triage process is a systematic and evidence-based process for determining level of risk and the subsequent level of intervention required. It also helps determine the need for, plan and carry out a referral for further evaluation and or treatment.

Additional information and skills training will cover topics including suicide contagion, self-‐‐harm, child and adolescent presentations of depression and anxiety, suicidal communications and, most importantly, how to talk to children and adolescents about suicide.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the skills and knowledge that you passed onto me at the QPR training. The week following attending your programme I was able to assist in saving the life of a 14yr old girl. Without this training I’m not sure that things would have unfolded as straight forwardly as they did. I felt so empowered to know that I had done everything I could. Thank you thank you thank you”.
